Monthly Costs

How much does it cost to live as a member of the Bright Oaks of Aurora Family?

One of the first questions a prospective Family Member and their relatives asks is "How Much?". Before giving a definitive answer, it is important to understand what is included in our monthly fees.

When someone lives in their own home, the expenses mount up. Food, upkeep, utilities, lawn maintenance, snow removal, home care if required, real estate taxes and much more all contribute to the overall cost of owning a home. The beauty of living in a Bright Oaks community is what is included in the monthly fee and care fees. Bright Oaks of Aurora’s fees include the following:
